This was a pretty hard hitting and macabre start to our Cambodian experience. This tour provides you with a pretty in depth understanding of the Pol Pot regime and the resulting genocide. Our tour guide was pretty in depth in his explanations throughout our visit to the Tuol Sleng Prison and the Killing Fields. I wouldn't recommend this for the feint of heart or young children. However, I couldn't fault the guide. Very thorough in the information he was giving. The remainder of the day was cheerier, with a great lunch being had at the NGO Training Restaurant for young Cambodians, where we got to try deep fried Tarantula. There is normal Cambodian cuisine available. The visit to the Silk farm was also quite educational and fun. The owners of the farm were great to talk to, they spoke English quite well and made us feel quite welcome in their home. The final part of the tour was good, however it was too cloudy to see a sunset. Overall a great way to spend the day in Phnom Penh.
Take this tour. Very informative. You will have to pay for your drinks if you take the lunch option.
A great tour, directed by a fantastic tour guide who really knew his stuff. Highly recommended.
Great tour and guide. You get to understand and experience Cambodia's past and present. Loved the island trip. Nice to see the capital by car, boat, and Tuk-Tuk. Wonderful day.
Another great tour, and well worth the guided tour. Far far better than doing it on your own and in a tuk tuk, and honestly this way wasn't much dearer, and far more informative.the lunch was a great experience in itself, note though only upto us$7 paid towards your choice, the curry with baguette was totally yummy, and all for such a great cause. The Russian market is hot, and full of the usual market fare. Had "dessert" at the central market, which was actually before lunch...was a little concerned with the fact it wasn't fresh, but stomach seems to have survived....oh and for some reason no walk along the water front, but that wasn't needed anyway, as all likely to do in own time anyway, just surprised mentioned in highlights but didn't happen....although did go to a fish market on outskirts of town, that was a fantastic inclusion as no way would have known or though to visit this alone
This tour was an experience and a chance to see Phnom Penh through the eyes of the people. The guide was excellent.
My guide was Thong Sophalkun and he went above and beyond his duties, his commentary was excellent and he made the tours I took with Viator and the local tour company a truly memorable experience. When I return to Cambodia, and I certainly will, I shall ask for his services as a guide again.
Our tour guide and driver were excellent. They were very flexible in the places that they took us and they accommodated our wishes. I was I initially worried about the safety of riding in the cyclo but during the ride we felt very safe as the traffic accommodates cyclos and our driver was very good. A lot of local cultural aspects were covered. This is a great introduction to Phnom Penh.
I ended up on this tour by myself, just with the guide. Daro was fantastic, and I really appreciated his extensive historical knowledge of PP and Cambodia generally. He was also fun to hang out with!
Great fun, best way to see the city, was expecting the rickshaw ride to be longer (only 40 mins), but really enjoyable. Daro was a great guide.
Great experience!!! The cyclo was a real treat and a great way to see the city sights. We enjoyed the entire day with a great English speaking guide.
